The All Progressives Congress (APC), Yobe state chapter, on Friday, April 12, advised Senator Ali Ndume (Borno-APC), to respect supremacy of the party and avoid placing personal interest above collective interest.

“The interest of the party supersedes all other interests,” Bakabe said as he cautioned the legsilator against working with the opposition to ridicule the APC.

“Ndume should avoid the pitfalls of the Bukola Saraki’s Senate presidency, this must not be repeated in the interest of the party, Nigeria and democracy,” he said while commending the returning and newly elected senators for identifying with the position of the party and the presidency on the proposed leadership of the National Assembly.
“The state chapter of APC expresses optimism that the Borno senator will remain loyal to the party, its leadership and President Muhammadu Buhari.
“As a party, we cannot afford to accommodate any sabotage and a divided house after the bitter experience of the last four years," he said.
He also argued that the endorsement of the Senate leader, Ahmad Lawan, for the president of the upper chamber will provide the required leadership and coordination for the APC-led administration to effectively execute its policies and programmes for the benefit of Nigerians.
“Lawan will run an inclusive leadership that will give every Nigerian a true sense of belonging and fulfillment, he has the required experience, knowledge and administrative skills for the senate to reclaim its glory as a progressive arm of government,” he said.
